About Elphinstone Point

Elphinstone Point is situated 3.21 km ahead of Arthur's Seat and 11 km ahead of Frere Hall. At this point the cliffs are higher and rise from the Konkan, which is around 2500 ft below the level of the Koyna valley. Built during the British rule, this point is named after the Governor of Bombay, Sir Elphinstone.

Tourists can enjoy the view of Koyna valley, plains and the ravine, which lies between the Elphinstone point and Arthur point. The view of River Savitri, which originates from this point is also beautiful. Discovered by Dr. Murray in 1830.

The view in this point is nothing great. The steps are poorly maintained and very dusty.

From this point you can get a picturesque view of Panchgani and Mahabaleshwar. Roads are narrow but very smooth, not very crowded.
